Dune

Revealing mistake: During the invasion of Dune by the Harkonnen, a Sardukar soldier throws a guard from what appears to be the palace's wall. When he hits the ground all the bodies around him bounce as if they where lying on some sort of cushion. (01:09:50)

Revealing mistake: When the spice filled tank carrying the mutated Guild Navigator enters the hall where the Emperor is waiting, one of the Guild agents falls to the ground at the left side of the tank; first an arm trying to stop the fall and then the head are visible for a moment. (00:06:15)

Jack the Rigger

Revealing mistake: In the extended version, when Dr. Yue receives the message from Baron Harkonen, one of the "dead" bodies in the background can be seen moving. (01:00:55)

Other mistake: There is a scene in which Piter DeVries is talking about the Landsraad (one of the governmental organizations in Dune). Twice he mispronounces the name, saying "Lansdraad" instead.

Trivia: David Lynch was disgusted with the elongated cut of the film which includes paintings of the 'robot revolt' back story to the original film, a sub-plot he deliberately omitted. He demanded his name be removed from the credits of the film and replaced with the Director's Guild nom de plume, 'Alan Smithee'. This was done so sloppily, by superimposing Smithee's name over Lynch's, that the credit reads "A ALAN SMITHEE FILM".
